8:04pm

for business this morning following a noro-virus outbreak. that sickened 45 people. new tonight at eight. kron 4's reggie kumar tells us what the restaurant owner thinks happened. for the past few weeks, they can transmit the virus. they say that they passed the last health inspection with no problem. drivers along san francisco's central freeway, and parts of interstate 80, have been left confused by missing lane divider lines. the markers were removed by cal-trans crews working on
8:08pm
the roadways. new tonight at eight. kron 4's charles clifford explains why. and when they may return. this is video i shot while merging onto southbound interstate 80 from 7th street in san francisco thursday afternoon. notice anything missing? the lane lines are gone. there's no white lines or reflective markers seperating the lanes or marking the shoulders. there is a vague outline of where those things used to be, but it's hard to see. what happened to the lines?
8:09pm
well, earlier this month caltrans started resurface the roadway along this portion of interstate 80 and the central freeway, which connects 80 to market street. the work required removing the lane lines and reflective markers. apparently the plan was to replace those things immediately, but the cold weather that hit the bay area mid month delayed that work. this is a google earth image of what the roadway looked like before. the lines were in rough shape then, but at least you could see them. now, they're almost completely gone and for the past few weeks drivers have had to pretty much guess if they're actually in a lane. it's been even worse at night time. but if all goes well, the problem will be short lived. i spoke with caltrans thursday afternoon and they tell me that a contractor is scheduled to finish painting both directions of 8o by friday evening. the lane lines have already been replaced along the central freeway and the shoulders will also be painted by this weekend. in san francisco, charles clifford kron 4 news.
